I was very happy to spend twice one week in this hostel!
The place very clean, they have a full HD sceen to watch movies, news and football games in the big hall.
The hostel is very well-located in the Poblado, at 2-minutes' walk of the Zona Rosa (Parque Lleras).
The people at the hostel were a mix of international travellers and Colombians visiting the city.
The hostel can help you for the visit of the Peñol of Guatape as well as Santa Fe de Antioquia.
I would recommend the place to anyone who wants to party and to visit Medellin.

The hostel is perfectly located in the Zona Rosa of Medellin, in a safe area, with an active nightlife, The Hostel is well decorated and is very clean, the atmosphere is very familiar, the service is very good, especially the treatment of its receptionist Sandra Perez, who is better known as Cantalicia!!!! When you will be here ask for her!! She is so funny, friendly and helpful.

I had a great time at the hostel. The location is just right to be in the middle of the “action” and still very handy for coming back to the hostel and be peaceful and safe. The two streets to the Parque LLeras are also safe streets to walk at night, always with people around. Restaurants, clubs, coffle places is all around the corner.
The staff is very friendly and I love the showers… full pressure and always hot water, toilets very clean. Same with the kitchen and the whole place.
I was there for a week before I went to a festival, left my luggage for 3 days and I come back to the same place… so I recommend it!
There is coffle all day long and a piece of fruit waiting for you to get up to enjoy it
